New Vizada Broadband Packages

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

Vizada has launched a range of maritime broadband packages integrating Ku-band VSAT and mobile satellite services (MSS), including the newly-launched Vizada XChangeTM. Shipping companies can select the combination of VSAT, MSS hardware and airtime best suited to their needs while being able to upgrade to a higher bandwidth plan or next generation satellite service during or after contract termination.

The packages range from unlimited 256kbps VSAT airtime-only starting at $1,500 per month up to an unlimited 1024kbps VSAT plus MSS airtime and hardware back-up, for a monthly fee of $2,750. Customers can choose between a VSAT antenna from Thrane & Thrane, Vizada’s preferred partner, as well as Intellian or Sea Tel, with the Inmarsat FleetBroadband 250 and 500 or Iridium OpenPort service as back up.

Packages are further enhanced with the newly launched Vizada XChangeTM service, seamlessly integrating VSAT, MSS voice and broadband data in one unified network designed to provide access to Vizada SolutionsTM, such as the SkyFile messaging and security suite and Prepaid solutions, hosted via the Vizada teleports.

In order to meet timeframes that suit shipping companies’ needs, Vizada offers flexible contractual terms, starting from 12 month commitments. 36 month contracts include vessel lay-up and bandwidth upgrade options while allowing for the best migration path to next generation Ku- or Ka-band service.

The coverage of Vizada’s Pharostar VSAT service will be extended in the Indian and Southern Atlantic Oceans in 2011 and 2012 enabling shipping companies to benefit from global Ku-band connectivity. In this way Pharostar connectivity is available on the main shipping routes from Asia to South Africa, overcoming what is considered the main gap in global VSAT coverage.

Available via Vizada’s global network of certified service providers, the new global maritime broadband package offers shipping companies the right level of choice flexibly today and in the future.
